Does anyone know how to make a direct capture / recording of SSDR video via the pc ? I can accomplish a screen shot with the windows snipping tool and get the following



and likewise


however it would be neat to record video being produced by SSDR w/o holding an ipad or similar up to my lcd display. Any suggestions ? I imagine that there may be third party software I could download but I am leery of free stuff cuz free stuff is never free usually some way or another. Specifically I guess I am asking if anyone knows of a windows screen recording tool made for sale by MS ? 

BTW, these are screenshots of AM broadcast in Reno.

This will do it. Often used for recording game play on PCs.

I like ManyCam (Paid Version) for the features:
  • Different Audio sources at the same time. (DAX1, DAX2, ... DAX n) Mic, etc.
  • Different Video sources (pic in pic) I can record screen and webcam capture
  • Virtual Webcam (you can use a Virtual ManyCam to send desktop to skype)
  • I can record the desktop and myself and use a green/blue or any solid color background.
  • Many different resolution combinations
  • Easy upload to many services, such as YouTube.
  • You can select to record a full screen or just the application.
  • Easy to use GUI.


You can try the FREE version before you pay. FREE version has limited features.

I have no affiliation to ManyCam besides being a happy customer.

You could always capture the I/Q stream via DAX and play the file back whenever. I guess it depends on who needs to see it played back.

I really like how my Flex can capture audio via a  virtual button on SSDR and I am just wanting something similar for SSDR generated video via my PC vice via a camera pointing at my lcd display. It would be a matter of convenience plus I think a video recording via the pc would better capture the awesome graphics generated by SSDR.

Is it possible to play back the I/Q stream in SmartSDR? I liked this feature in PowerSDR but haven't done this for years.

I have just thought this through ... due to the thin client architecture, is there a way to record the I/Q stream through DAX and then feed it back to the radio for playback through SmartSDR.

No.

No.  The radio does not process I/Q data in the same way as the previous generation of SDRs.

For my Flex-Radio tutorials, I have used OpenBroadcaster, which is a freeware, multi-platform program.  It is relatively easy to configure, and did I say FREE?

SnagIt is great for screen shots ... Camtasia will record your screen action real time. It's a little salty though but it is good.
